Dell Vostro 1500 laptop purchased

I’ve been looking for reviews on the Dell Vostro 1500, and I finally found a few. It seems as though all around the board, it’s a decent system that is fairly bulky, has average battery life, and has the potential for great specs.

I’ve been saving for awhile, so, I committed to buying it today. I found the deal I needed on SlickDeals. It wasn’t any $750 off $1500, but it made the price good enough to take.

I bought the system at its base, with an upgraded LCD, graphics card, and warranty. Specs:

  • *Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5470 (1.6GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB)
  • Genuine Windows® XP Home
  • 15.4 in Wide Screen SXGA+LCD Display w/TrueLife™
  • *1GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz, 2 DIMM
  • 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ 8600M GT
  • 120G 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
  • Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem
  • 8X CD/DVD Burner w/ double-layer DVD+R write capability
  • High Definition Audio 2.0
  • Dell Wireless 1390 802.11g Wi-Fi Mini Card
  • 56 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery
  • Get $70 Dell Dollars w/3Yr Ltd Warranty and Next Business Day On-Site Svc

For $968.00 with free shipping. The items prepended with * are those which I plan to upgrade as time and money allows.

Now to sell my Dell Inspiron 700m. Most likely on eBay. It’s school season, eBay prices on laptops are inflated at least $100 :).

    I’ll buy your old laptop. Sure! I’ll give you ten dollars, a pack of gum (minus one stick), AND a five dollar Starbucks Gift Card.

    At some point, not right away. I don’t exactly have a copy yet, per se.

    Who can write more clearly than you about such things!
    I assure you, nobody, I have seen something like this only on https://wervirginia.com/maximize-your-scholarship-application/. I enjoyed
    the article and assume you have more such material?
    If so, so please post it since it is somewhat unusual for me at the current moment, and not
    only for me, that is my view. Hopefully, I can get an in-depth manual
    of yours and be aware of all the news and the latest data.
